About the Book

Un Chien Andalou, the most influential of all surrealist films, has shocked, provoked and puzzled audiences and critics since its release in 1929.

Luis Bunuel's first film was a collaboration with his fellow Spaniard, the 24-year-old Salvador Dali. They aimed to expunge from their script any 'idea or image that might lend itself to a rational explanation'. The result is a film that alludes and disturbs but stubbornly resists a definitive meaning.

This edition includes a foreword by Jean Vigo, an early champion of the film, a shot-by-shot transcription and an extended introduction by Phillip Drummond.
